I'm really having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that I'm over a third of the way through this pregnancy. I mean, according to babycenter, I actually have a human looking mini baby in there! This whole experience just seems to be flying right past me. I feel so incredibly lucky, because I've really been enjoying being pregnant. (For the most part. I don't think anyone enjoys yaking up Indian food....) But I'm still just in awe of what is happening inside my body. It's still hard for me to believe that I'm growing a human.
More specifically, a human the size of an apple this week.
The hardest thing for me so far has been my body. It's been really hard for me to accept the changes and the growing numbers on the scale with the dignity I'd hoped I would have. While I should never compare myself to other women, let alone other pregnant women, I've noticed that I'm bursting out of my pre-pregnancy clothes at an alarmingly quick rate. Scary stuff.
I've just got to suck it up. Hopefully baby is getting smarter with each pound I gain. (And screw the babycenter weight updates!)
As another counter measure - I picked up this DVD.
Hopefully it will kick my ass into gear!

Here is the 11 week shot vs the 14 week shot
As a side note, I am officially in my 2nd Trimester! Woot.

I picked up a pair of these during the brief window they were available from the Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. Saying that I love them would be an understatement. Nordies is sold out through August, but you can pick up a pair here.

Not Rational Gretel
And just because I still think it's pretty. Another shot of the Mia Bossi Alisa. *sigh*

Anyway, here are a few that I've had my eye on:
Mia Bossi Caviar Bag
Storksak Emily Pewter
This one isn't a baby bag, but it seems very usable
Tory Burch Nylon Tote
Also not baby bags, but I was also directed to check out these bags by a new company called Physhion. They're technically Gym bags and have a similar fabric exterior to the Petunia Pickle bottom glazed bags. They seem large enough and well organized inside - but I'm still not sure.
So, to all you more experienced moms... What diaper bag are you toting?

Doesn't it look like he/she's sucking its thumb?
I love the crossed legs in this one. So graceful looking!
This one makes me think Baby might be a girl. (I've been thinking boy so far this entire pregnancy) Doesn't it look like she's getting her hands ready for her manicure. :)

Last week we had another ultrasound to see our fetus. There aren't even really any words to describe how cool it is to see an actually baby shape waving back at you. We could see its little heart beating away and even blood flow through the umbilical cord. Very Sci-Fi.
Wednesday I have my NT scan, so I'll get to see the baby again! Koka will be in Houston, so I'm bringing my mom. She's pretty excited to get her first glimpse at the grandbaby.
